what is inside?


It is a day in a women's life that she never forgets. I think every woman probably remembers where they were and what they were doing when they got "it".
My friends daughter recently became a woman and I wanted to get her something for her "special" day. Her big dilemma is where to keep them when she goes to school. (My socks always worked well). I thought a makeup bag, but this girl doesn't wear a stitch of makeup. I then thought that perhaps I could knit her something to store them in. Hmmmm, no, a little hokey for a 13 year old. I needed to come up with something that could be thrown into her backpack that could be disguised for something else. So, this is what I settled on. If someone sees it they would think it is an eyeglass case. However, peek inside and you will see it is a little more:

I found the flower (yo-yo)tutorial on Heathers blog, and can be found here. I thought it added a little youthfulness.

And the chocolate, well I'm sure that she will have a craving soon!
Now, maybe I should come up with a pattern to knit one. :)

That is a great idea!! Much better than the 'jam them into your pencil case' system I used. Did keep boys from stealing my pens though.

Oh, what a great idea! I just threw tampons in my back pack... How disorderly :)

Super Thinking! I'll have to keep that idea in mind for when my daughter gets "it" =)

Good idea! Looks really pretty & yet so practical! Now let's hope that none of her friends find your blog and recognize "the eyeglasses case"
He!He! I need one of those.

Oh - what a really, really fantastic idea this is! I wish my Mom would have come up with something similar back then - I just carried that stuff around in my backpack, and it felt odd, very odd!

What a brilliant idea. Maybe if I make one for myself I'll remember the idea when Lola gets her period. Ha! Not likely. But I can still hope.

That is really sweet and thoughtful and mainly cool - essential adjective for any teenager's posessions! I would have loved something like this when I was at that age.
